Charity work

I worked with a renowned charity in Hyderabad, India which has branches all over India and abroad.

The charity is an innovative public private partnership to demonstrate a model to address poverty alleviation through linking learning and livelihood needs of working children and disadvantaged youth at risk to equitable qualitative learning and promising labour market oriented vocational training opportunities. 

As a part of educating youth, I wrote, produced, directed and edited a 98 minute film, which was shot in Hyderabad, India. The DVDs were dubbed in regional languages and distributed. The fill was called “Aashaa Kiran” (A ray of hope).

My role was to edit the books used in the syllabus and interact with the programme developers for online educational tools. This involved use of ARTICULATE programme.

As a part of furthering the education of high school dropouts I initiated “Physician Assistant” programme modelled for Indian needs. This two year course was approved by IGNOU (Indira Gandhi National Open University).

Educational Videos for patients

I wrote, filmed, edited and distributed educational videos on the self-management of chronic pain to my patients whilst working as a Consultant in Pain management.
